Emergency back up power for the Machala General Hospital (Ecuador), a healthcare facility with 36 specialities and a catchment area of 350,000 people


Genesal Energy has recently supplied 4 electrical generators as backup power for the Machala General Hospital in Ecuador. A modern facility it’s healthcare options include 36 areas of specialisation for a region of 350,000 in the El Oro Province, one of the country’s most important administrative and financial centres.

Designed by Genesal Energy the emergency gensets form an essential part of the electrical installation within the complex, which covers 24,000 sq. metres and contains 200 patient beds.

The Genesal Energy solution is a guarantee of a continued power supply for the hospital in the event of a grid failure for national network, ensuring the hospital remains fully operational and that all vital healthcare continues. The Genesal Energy solution means the gensets have been prepared to operate in parallel two by two, supplying 1254 kVA per genset pairing, as well as automatic start up if there is a g power cut in the external grid supply.

The nature of these projects means that the any unexpected eventuality can be fatal. The gensets have therefore been designed with one clear objective, to immediately support the loads demanded should the normal external power supply stop functioning. Aside of their maximum operational precision, the gensets have been sound proofed for outdoor installation and to ensure that noise levels are kept to a minimum I the surrounding area.
